FREE FOOTBALL TAILGATE: EVERYONE IS INVITED!
Upgrade is an initiative of the Welborn Baptist Foundation that aims to help students win in the classroom through healthy choices and physical activity. In an effort to raise more awareness of our Upgrade program and involve the community, Huntingburg Elementary, Holland Elementary, Southridge Middle School and North Spencer Schools are teaming up to offer a FREE HEALTHY TAILGATE EVENT before the SOUTHRIDGE vs. HERITAGE HILLS varsity football game on Friday, September 28th. The tailgate will be held in the lawn south of the football field and will begin at 6:30 EST (game time is 8:00). Raider and Patriot fans will have the opportunity to sample healthy food options, gather recipes, and learn more about local nonprofits and businesses who also promote healthy lifestyles.

First Grade Happenings

Third Grade News
The third grade classes have been working on multiplication in Math, and the kids are off to a good start. We are learning that multiplication -and division!- can be represented in arrays, equal groups, as equal jumps on a number line, and as repeated addition or subtraction. Soon we will use this knowledge to make fact families. Our main focus in Social Studies has been three main types of communities: urban, suburban, and rural. We've discovered that we live in a rural community! All of our classes have been enjoying lots of great books and working on our reading and language arts skills. Third graders are also working on a variety of important skills in IReady.
Attached are two photos of students working in IReady.

Library Media Center News
Book Fair and Storybook Walk
*New this year, the public library will have a Storybook Walk set up for all the students and families. Basically, you walk along the designated trail reading the story a couple pages at a time, while also completing a short physical activity that goes with each page. Fun!!
International Dot Day
Some library classes celebrated International Dot Day, a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration. The Dot, written by Peter H. Reynolds, “is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.” Each class read the story and then created their own dot. Some classes made coffee filter dots, some created with one dot, some created a 3D dot using Quiver Vision, and others created a dot using an online painting program.
